## That Tutor Guy

Math teachers just do not have enough time to perfectly teach each and every student. For those students who need a little extra help at home (because we all know their parents are unlikely to help them) this website is great!

## Yacapaca

Too much time is spent creating tests, quizzes and the like. This tool allows you to use thousands of pre-made quizzes as well as create and upload your own.

## Prezi

The days of PowerPoint have come and gone. It's Prezi's time to rule the lecture! Use simple animations, images and mapping to spice up your text.

## Khan Academy

You don't have to pretend you know everything about math. You don't. Khan Academy is one of the easiest ways to re-teach yourself or learn something new.

## Chartle

Creating graphs is almost a weekly duty for secondary math educators. Cut down on time and stress with Chartle, a tool that allows for creation and embedding of graphs.

## Chirbit

How often have you had to teach the same thing to 5 or more students after school, before school or during your study hall? Chirbit is an audio recording tool that could cut that to one lesson every time. Students who are absent or don't quite follow your lesson in class can listen to this lesson at home and hopefully catch up.
